One man has died and another seriously injured in a shooting inside a McKeesport auto shop late this afternoon.
Police said that about 10 minutes before 5 p.m., two men entered the Meade Brothers Trucking Co. in the 1200 block of 5th Avenue. They went inside the company's office and at least one of them opened fire, striking two employees.
Both victims were flown to a local hospital, where one of them was pronounced dead; the other victim's condition was not immediately available.
Lt. Andrew Schurman, of the Allegheny County police homicide unit, said police are searching for information about two men who might have exited the shop's garage moments after the shots were fired.
Anyone with information is asked to call the county police homicide unit at 412-473-1300.
